But at Gaebler, we see acupuncture schools still selling at a brisk pace. Not surprisingly, buyers expect to receive value for their dollars - and that means sellers need to demonstrate that their businesses are capable of delivering anticipated returns.
The Best Person to Sell Your Acupuncture School
As the owner, you are both the best and worst person to sell your acupuncture school. Without a doubt, you have the most at stake in the outcome of your sale. That makes you the most passionate advocate for your acupuncture school in the business-for-sale marketplace. The problem is that your passion for your business can also sabotage your sale. Nearly all sellers have an inflated sense of their company's value. At a minimum, conduct an independent appraisal of the acupuncture school to gain an objective sense of fair market value.
The Emotions of a Business Sale
Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. Although you might think you're ready to exit your business, selling and separating from an acupuncture school scan stir up a range of emotions. It's important to allow yourself time to process your emotions during your exit. At the same time, it's helpful to consult with people who can help limit the influence of your emotions on negotiations and other aspects of the sale process.
Why Confidentiality Matters
Highly publicized acupuncture school sales are risky acupuncture schoolsales. A low-key selling strategy is a low risk activity because you can control who does (and doesn't) know that your business is on the market. But if word leaks out to the wrong people, your competitors can use that information to steal business and damage your credibility. Although it can be difficult, it's important to strike a balance between confidentiality and sale promotion. If confidentiality is important to you (and it should be), your best bet is to consult with a professional business broker about maintaining a confidential acupuncture school sale.
